The One Where I’m Back on Track


I am having a bit of writer’s block today. Normally, when I prepare a post, I scroll through the photos on my phone to remember what the heck I did yesterday and build the text around the pictures. Since I’ve stopped photographing every meal (I don’t think I talked about that; more on my eats later. If you care.) I’m finding that my camera roll is quite sparse. I mean, here’s what I have from yesterday,



And they’re just funny pins from Pinterest I grabbed to store for a more appropriate time later.

So I guess I’m just stuck with talking about the gym. After work yesterday I had another Ruby coding class to get to, so I did a flurry of an arm session before I had to grab my sad little PC netbook and head out:

  • W/U 5 min on the treadmill, combo of run/walk << this is about as long as I can handle being on the “dreadmill”
  • Bench Press 3×10 @ 30 lb dumbbells
  • Bent Over Rows 3×10 @ 20 lb
  • Shoulder Press 3×10 @ 15 lb
  • Bicep Curl 3×10 @ 15 lb
  • Lat Pulls 3×10 @ 35 kg (I’m pretty sure the lat machine measures in kg’s right now. The “35” plate about lifts me off the seat, and I KNOW I’m not that little)

And as I looked at my calendar from the past week I realized that I’m on a workout streak. I’ve done something every day the past 7 days in a row. Woo-hoo! Last Wednesday I had to drag my butt out of bed and bargain myself to get back in the program, and I have successfuly maintained my track all week. I rock.

Since I don’t think I really talked about it, here’s what the past week has been, work-wise:

Wednesday – Cardio & Legs
Thursday – Run 3.5 mi on the dreadmill
Friday – Lifting – Arms
Saturday – Run 8 mi
Sunday – Recovery, spin 30 min
Monday – Lifting – Legs
Tuesday – Lifting – Arms

You know, it is TOTALLY easier to list what I have done than listing a plan of stuff that I intend to do and will probably fail at. I feel much more accomplished this way.

Anyway, we’re doing the happy dance over here. And stealing Mommy’s phone because it’s great fun to take selfies.

  1. I would love to start lifting, I’m just so intimidated to start at the gym in the “big boy section”. I’ve been looking into Starting Strength and will probably start in the summer!

  2. I love reading your posts!
    On another note, I nominated you for the Super Sweet Blogging Award. (I am just now getting to notifying people, sorry it took so long!) Well deserved! 🙂
